Last September 15th on the anniversary of Mexico’s Independence an outdoor fair was held at our Day Center to commemorate the event.

The young people had fun, ate, played and danced big time. All could enjoy the fun Mexican games:  snakes and ladders, potato sack races, pin the tail on the donkey, spinning tops and other attractions. The favorite activity of the afternoon was Bingo with appearances by the mermaid, the barrel and the ladder.

We all enjoyed a very Mexican menu with the traditional and tasty pozole along with fresh fruit drinks. Mangos and jicama with chile powder were put out and the youngsters quickly got in line to try them with lime and salt. Desserts were part of the get together including rice pudding and Mexican candies.

So the afternoon was spent in laughter, with good company and the happiness generated by being part of a community that cares about children, young people and their families’ rights to recreation and celebration.

Tenemos una batalla por ganar y juntos podemos hacerlo ...

Cuando un niño vive en un mundo violento y lleno de desigualdades, donde carece de las oportunidades y la atención que necesita para su desarrollo, su futuro está en peligro.

Pasa muchas horas solo, porque sus padres tienen que trabajar, y cuando vuelven a casa, no saben cómo comunicarse con él. Incluso en la escuela, él no se siente apoyado. Incluso ha pensado en dejarlo.

Más y más, prefiere estar en la calle en lugar de ir a la escuela o quedarse en casa. En la calle no está solo, siempre hay gente alrededor para hablar y hacer cosas con él y tiene acceso a sustancias que crean una sensación de bienestar.

Sin embargo, tendrá que enfrentar:

Explotación

Discriminación

Violencia

Enfermedad

Adicciones

¿Muerte?

En Pro Ninos estamos trabajando para hacer algo al respecto.

Ofrecemos apoyo para que pueda desarrollar habilidades con las que pueda manejar situaciones que lo ponen en riesgo.

Le facilitamos que reciba tratamiento médico, psicológico y de abuso de sustancias para que esté sano.

También trabajamos con sus padres y profesores para que también puedan desarrollar habilidades para guiarlo, escucharlo y cuidarlo.

Queremos que esto suceda con más niños que viven en ambientes de violencia y desigualdad para que puedan tener el poder de cambiar su vida en la calle por el futuro que sueñan.

¿Vas a unirte a esta batalla?

The Day Center hosted the Vocational Fair where junior high schoolers were able to find a wide range of alternative options beside school, as well as health and vocational counseling.

This event took place on June the 8th, inviting youngsters whom, due to behavioral and school problems, presented the risk of not continuing with their higher education. Our guests received information about rights, courses, workshops, scholarships and sexual and reproductive health, as well as the skills development programs that are carried out at Fundación Pro Niños de la Calle IAP.

We also invited government agencies committed to the support and development of youth. Such as the Youth Institute which provided advice on sexual and reproductive health and the Institute for the Care and Prevention of Addictions in Mexico City which informed the kids about addictions and performed rapid HIV testing and spirometry.

On the other hand, the Innovation and Learning Network, shared information about the academic courses that they offer, as well as the scholarships provided for these courses, Faro Indios Verdes informed about activities and workshops they offer in their facilities. In addition, Promotora Social Mexico’s staff gave a talk about vocational orientation.

At the same time, Fundación Pro Niños’ staff shared with the students information about Industrial Training Centers and the courses that they offer near Pro Niños facilities.

The boys attending the Vocational Fair were completely interested in the information received as it will allow them to choose different activities according to their interests and tastes, acquiring in addition knowledge about sexual and reproductive health.

Health Rally
Health Rally

The Health Rally was held at the ”Celestino Gorostiza” Junior High School where students got to know each other, had some fun and learned about alternative solutions to different health situations they face in the various environments where they have their daily activities.

The Health Rally was possible thanks to the participation of Merck Sharp & Dohme Comercializadora, S. de R.L. De C.V., who collaborated with the educational area at Pro-Ninos to develop the planning of an intervention strategy and create the didactic material to use.

This activity was done in the junior high in the Cuauhtemoc municipality, with the purpose that students in all three grades could explore alternatives for living a healthy lifestyle.

It was done by setting up eight different work stations where the youngsters between the ages of 12 and 15 learned about Ways to Live Well, which aimed to raise awareness about the nutritional value of food to which they have access. In addition, the importance of physical activity was taken up through dynamics in which they danced and did exercises that contribute to good physical and emotional development.

Hygiene was also a fundamental axis of the rally, at this work station, they learned in a fun way the importance of personal hygiene in the prevention of diseases that can affect them, as well as to discover how through hygiene they can achieve good health and high self-esteem.

The importance of sleep was emphasized through a dynamic in which students organized their own schedules, understanding that good time management helps them to have healthier habits. Likewise, sexual health was addressed with the goal of knowing the importance of being responsible for the daily situations in which they practice their sexuality.

Finally, another of the main points of the rally was the topic of addictions, where they identified the risks and consequences that arise in the handling and consumption of drugs and other illegal substances.

 At the conclusion of "The Health Rally", youngsters were able to carry out a plan of ten steps for a healthy life, at which point they synthesized everything learned during this journey through the different work stations.

With these actions the Foundation Pro Niños de la Calle, I. A. P. demonstrates its commitment to prevention, reinforcing skills in young people to remove them from the risk factors that can bring them closer to living on the streets.
